HOFFMAN ESTATES – An annual golf outing will benefit an Addison Trail senior who graduated from Addison School District 4 and is pursuing a college education. This year’s recipient to the scholarship is Ingrid Gonzalez.

“She demonstrated the best out of all the applicants a clear goal to what she wanted to do with her life,” said Brooke Marshall, Memorial Scholarship Fund founder and son of the late Brooke Ryan Marshall. “She had a game plan to overcome the hurdles and obstacles along the way.”

The Brooke Marshal Memorial Scholarship Fund will hold its annual golf outing Aug. 17 at the Bridges of Poplar Creek County Club in Hoffman Estates. Participants will enjoy a silent auction, raffle, drinks and dinner. Proceeds will go to the scholarship fund.

The scholarship was founded in the memory of Brooke Marshall, a first-grade teacher at Army Trail Elementary in Addison who believed that everyone who wanted a college education should get one. In 2009, Brooke Marshall died from brain cancer, and the Marshall family started the scholarship with the help of the Addison School District 4 Foundation for Educational Excellence.
